Passed IA on the first try with a decent amount of effort. Passed FA on the first try with an undetermined amount of effort (I took it a week after finding out my fiance was a cheating scumbag so the whole time period is a blur)

3rd try on IA, 1st on FA, I think I just learned what they're looking for:
Answer each question that is asked, in a separate bullet point/paragraph, make sure you answer EACH question, don't give them a general answer for a block of questions.
I never really thought any of the material was hard. I get careless sometimes and forget to answer one of the questions that's in a huge paragraph of questions, format it in a way that makes it easy for you to make sure that you answered the questions, and for the grader to find them too.
If you have questions with the materials or the numbers, that's an entirely different issue.

I would think the IA because you can't talk about it at all would be cause for stricter expected grading on FA where it's given you can discuss. Since I can't talk anything of IA I'm afraid I can't get any more specific
